The one thing that I am really proud about is that I have managed to keep going. No matter if one night I may eat something not on my meal plan, I’m not letting it sabotage my whole routine for just one meal. Before I would get so frustrated with myself if I couldn’t resist one craving and then the next day all the bad habits started all over again. I was left feeling hopeless and like a lost cause. I finally realized it doesn’t have to be that way. I know I can change my habits and lifestyle and will reap the benefits from it, so I am all about it. No more excuses or letting others let me down. This is something for me . So speaking of all about me………… I am so excited to report that I am officially down one pant size! One pair of pants that I have are so large now, nothing on my natural body will hold them up. Matter of fact I had lost them as I was walking across the parking lot at my job….. one embarrassing moment that I can laugh about! It is so nice to finally see a bit of a physical result. It just feeds me the reassurance that I am on my way. I think I am finally at peace with knowing it will take time, but once I’m where I want to be I know I will continue to take the time to stay that way.
Now it's not a success story overy night. I am struggling with a few areas still. For one, water. I am not allowing myself anything else, but I am just not a big drinker of any kind. I may have a drink with each meal, but not always. I have tried having a jug of water at my desk and keep a cup on my desk and fill it up first thing, but I’m lucky if I finish that. I am over the water is not exciting enough for me bit, it’s just I don’t get thirsty….. (wow wish that was my problem with food. Could you imagine having a fresh baked loaf of bread sitting on your desk all day, and never touch it cause you never get hungry). I wanted to go 21 days with drinking 8 glasses of 8 oz of water a day. To start I think I may need to set my alarm to remind me to drink a glass. I know that may seem drastic, but I think that might work for me. Who knows unless I try it, right?
The other thing I want to incorporate is the intensity of my workouts. I am gradually getting stronger and more energy, so I have been increasing the workouts a bit. Once I reach my goal for my water, I will up my workout routine by a few notches.
Well folks have a great day and thanks for reading!
